Marie Jobling, Executive Director of the Community Living Campaign, will lead a dialogue about how the Internet – and computers that fit in our pockets – can enrich our lives (and drive us crazy).
Ms.Jobling will highlight existing resources for free, or low-cost internet access, as well as for basic training, and one-to one-tutoring.
She will also include quick demos of Facebook, Skype and other internet and social media sites. Lastly, and importantly, she will share how technology is helping those of us with vision and hearing loss and other disabilities stay connected and engaged in our world.
Participants will get a chance to try out various tablets as well as other tools for access. There will be something for everyone, whether you love or hate this new world of on-line connections.
Audience discussion welcome!

Mojado: Unsung American Heroes
Galeria Beso Maya is proud to present Mojado: Unsung American Heroes, Adrian Delgado’s first solo exhibit. This specific series speaks truth to the struggle of obtaining the American Dream. These images tell the story of those often forgotten, Mojado: Unsung American Heroes, and how they are willing to work jobs most Americans refuse to.
This series of paintings is set out to reflect and express the construction of identity, what it means to be alienated based on “legal status,” and most importantly to shed light on the lives of those that are often forgotten but are truly the force that drives our American economy and society.
Opening reception: Saturday, June 21 at 12 p.m., exhibit Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, July 6. Admission free– donations accepted. Galeria Beso Maya, 3224 Fruitvale Ave., Oakland, California.
